    We first learned in Lagos (from UK motorhomers John & Vera) of a thief who targets only Uk motorhomes. Vehicle is old Burstner on German plates with distinctive pink childs bike on back. Occupants believed to be Moroccan gipsies husband wife & 2 children + rottie puppy. John & Vera witnessed 1 crime. Met again in Sagres as they spread word to UK homers their van was broken into by SAME thief who they saw driving away! Reg no. to follow hopefully tomorrow. Police actively seeking this thief for numerous thefts- any sightings to them. Stay safe - don't be isolated!

    Got my mate Bob from fort wiliam here and we plan to go to the algarce soon.
    Normally the scots are too miserable to go to the algarve they stay at home n moan. ha ha . They also get annoyed in spain that scottish whisky is cheaper there than at home .Then drink enough to sink a battle ship and say its not very good quality ha ha. have fun we will cheers alan.
